Airline Rates & Charges

The rates and charges which are used to invoice airlines are intended to recover costs of providing specific airport facilities for airlines, as well as to ensure certain debt service requirements are met. Rates and charges are established based on forecasted airline and passenger activity levels, and the related costs. The Airport Use Agreement and Premises Lease provides specific methodology for rates and charges, and permits mid-year, and other adjustments to rates and charges when warranted.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority issues bonds to finance capital infrastructure projects for Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, the Dulles Toll Road and Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. Official statements are available here.
